Thank You from Paddlefest!


I just wanted to pass along our sincerest appreciation to you and the CORBA membership for their support of Paddlefest.  Not only for the financial contribution made to the OAC, but in their understanding and patience regarding the temporary closure of the river.  While it is a shared resource, it is the lifeblood of your industry, and we greatly appreciate your allowing us exclusive use for a few hours every year!  Thank you!


With your help, this year was a huge success and the biggest Paddlefest ever with over 2,000 paddlers making their way down the Ohio in nearly 1,600 canoes, kayaks and stand up paddleboards.


Our sponsors, led by St. Elizabeth Healthcare, covered all our expenses as our participants helped us raise nearly $100,000 NET to support the wonderful work of Outdoor Adventure Clubs of Greater Cincinnati to get urban teens out into nature year round.  We could not do this without your support!


Thank you so much, again!  And please pass this on to your membership!
